Biopic confirmed, this famous chess player wants Aamir Khan to play his role on screen

Mumbai: A new biopic of a popular sports personality of India is coming up, and as per reports, ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ director Anand L Rai is working as the director of the biopic.

Five-time world chess champion Viswanathan Anand came to Kolkata after almost two years and participated in an exclusive interview on his biopic.

An international standard chess tournament will be held in Kolkata from Wednesday (17 November) onwards to next Sunday. Anand played against world champion Magnus Carlsen in this tournament a couple of years ago. However, this time Anand will be appointed as the mentor of the competition, not a player.

During the interview Viswanathan Anand said, “I have agreed to the biopic. The matter has already been discussed with the producer several times. I told them the stories of my life. The script writing work will start very soon.  However, due to Corona, the work has come to a standstill. Hopefully, everything will start very soon. I can’t say much about the biopic now. I don’t know when or how the shooting will start. Wait for few days everything we will get to know about this biopic.”

Anand was asked, which actor he would like to see in his role in the movie? Anand’s candid answer to the question was, “I can’t say who will play my role in the movie. But I can say my choice. Maybe it would be nice if Aamir Khan play Viswanathan Anand on screen. I think Aamir Khan has a lot of common with me.”

Anand was then asked like Leander Paes if he wanted to enter politics or not. Before completing the question, Anand replied, “No, I have no planning about entering politics. I want to keep playing chess.”
